How danielthepoet started their logo design journey

Company name

Mommypotamus

Overview

Hi there. I’m Heather, the Mommypotamus. I’m a mom. I have two beautiful children that were born in my living room.

I’m a researcher. Questioning the status quo comes naturally to me, which is why I rely on evidence-based research to guide my decisions on vaccinations, birth, extended-breastfeeding, circumcision, food and a bunch of other topics.

I’m a doer. For me, life’s pleasures come through the pursuit of the next goal. I love to DO, and to do well. Unfortunately, our society’s obsession with performance often becomes a pitfall. Who wants to be an amazing wife? Supermom? ME! Not to mention the other “master’s degrees” I am currently pursuing: chef, organic gardener, etc.

What do I hope people will get out of this blog? I hope they will encounter ideas that help them re-establish rhythms and a connection to Nature without having to go out and live in the woods. We are intentionally bringing Nature’s rhythms back into our lives, and we would love for you to take part in the process.

For more info about the "Mommypotamus" name, read this page -> http://www.mommypotamus.com/what-is…mypotamus/

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Audience = Women, Age 24-40, especially moms, who are making strides toward organic, attachment parenting, extended breastfeeding, or alternative health lifestyle. Also anyone who is proactive in researching and learning about more natural ways to live and thrive in our modern culture.

Requirements

Things I want:

1. A custom stylized font with a design surrounding it (possibly swirlies, paisley, or other decorative designs)
2. Blog Logo PLUS an additional custom avatar for social media profiles, possibly (but not necessarily) involving a uniquely styled "M"
3. Cheerful, Playful, Spirited, and light hearted
4. Some or all of the colors (or a similar warm combo of colors) found on this page: http://hyder.me/blog/
5. POSSIBLY a hippo image - more abstract and less cartoonish is preferable
6. A logo I like is Laura Rauch's at http://99designs.com/logo-design - I may end up going with something totally different but this is one possible direction

Things to avoid:

1. cartoon images of people
2. clip art
3. ultra girlie / feminine stuff

There's a fine line between too childish or cartooney and just right. PLEASE feel free to experiment and be open to suggestions. We'll hone it down to the perfect logo for me!

Note: The theme on Mommypotamus.com will remain, but every part of the above-the-fold style will probably change, as well as the overall color scheme. Will be changing the main navigation. The split color header will be changed also.

This logo may be big enough to be a banner image, or it may flow in conjunction with a solid color background. That part is flexible.

See the attached image for a photo of Heather (the "Mommypotamus").

I will give frequent and detailed feedback on designs submitted that show the designer has read these requirements and is doing some creative work.
